We were able to build the android from source using the instructions here: https://docs.khadas.com/vim3/BuildAndroid.html. In this custom version, we were able to include our apps. As part of this customization, one of the core requires couple of xml files placed under /data/system/ folder.
So we updated the /system/core/rootdir/init.rc file to:
chmod 0600 /data/system/file.xml
chown system system /data/system/file.xml
For some reason it doesn’t like “chown …” and the module get stuck at the android logo. If I remove the “chown…” command it boots fine but app fails as it doesn’t have admin permissions of the file.xml
does chmod 777 work ?
did you give the execution permission ?
Maybe it doesn’t like to have just the first group to be able to read, write, and execute it,
Yes, I tried chmod 777 instead of chmod 0600 as well and it get stuck at chmod 777 step
have you consulted Terry ?
he opened the topic for this
Yes, maybe @experi_me_ntos try posting there itself…
he has already published, where else should he publish?
I think Terry will understand the problem after advertising it in so many places
thanks to you, I hope he will notice
I think I found the issue. Looks like it is related to app changing the default launcher and nothing to do with the chmod/chown itself.
Hmm, ok, well it is good to hear your problem is solved
it’s very good that your problem is solved
